Review: Rimmel – Match Perfection 2-in-1 Skintone Adapting Concealer & Highlighter


I absolutely love this Match Perfection 2-in-1 Concealer & Highlighter and this is the 3rd or 4th tube I have bought. It is a 2-in-1 skintone adapting concealer & highlighter which contains Vitamin C and Vitamin E and also has an oxygen complex which allows the skin to breathe. It lasts for up to 13 hours wear and helps to banish signs of fatigue and illuminates the skin too.

The Match Perfection Concealer & Highlighter comes in a small 7 ml cream-coloured tube which features navy blue and hot pink writing, a blue screw-off lid and a brush tip applicator. To use you just squeeze the tube and the concealer comes out at the top saturating the brush applicator. The concealer itself has a lightweight, creamy consistency and it doesn’t have a scent. I chose the shade 010 Ivory which is very fair although there are other shades to choose from.

 I use this on both my bare skin and over make-up. When I skip foundation, I just apply a little of the concealer under my eyes to brighten up and even-out my skintone. It looks natural and you would never guess I was wearing it as it looks like my own skin. After applying my foundation, I use the concealer underneath my eyes to conceal and brighten my dark circles, make my under eyes look less ‘sunken’ and for highlighting my forehead, nose, cupids bow and underneath my cheek contour to make them ‘pop’ and look more defined. I apply a loose banana powder or a pressed setting powder over the concealer to make sure it stays put. The formula is thick, but not too thick and I love how lightweight the concealer feels on my skin which feels ‘breathable’. I hate heavy concealers which make my skin feel suffocated. It has a matte finish and I don’t find it looks cakey or powdery after applying or throughout the day.

I absolutely love how well it brightens my dark circles and it helps to conceal my deep-set, ‘sunken’ under eyes by making them appear plumper & firmer and less noticeable. I also love the precision brush applicator tip which is easier to use and you just screw of the lid, give it a squeeze and your ready-to-go. I find it blends better with my fingers by dabbing it lightly with my tips and it blends in well on the skin too. Also, one tube lasts me about 3-4 weeks and I use mine almost everyday.

I would say it is a light to medium coverage concealer so if your looking for a full coverage concealer I wouldn’t recommend this one but if you just want to add a little brightness to your eyes & skin as well as a bit of light coverage then this is perfect for you. My complexion is quite clear although it can look dull sometimes so I love how this brightens up my complexion as well as lightly concealing dark circles, eye bags, etc…  and it is also budget friendly too, so what’s not to love, hey!

I tested a bit of the concealer on a small patch of my psoriasis so you dolls can see the coverage/brightness for yourselves. Please keep in mind that my psoriasis are raised a little bit and I have only applied one layer of the concealer to my skin.

I hate taking photographs of my psoriasis, but oh well – ha. I hope they help.
